Faulty Battery Possible Source of Vista Power Issues

I was surfing Toshiba's support website this evening, looking for updated drivers for Vista (there aren't any yet), when I stumbled on updated information for Toshiba's battery recall. It turns out that Toshiba added a bunch of models, including the Tecra's (M3-7) and the Satellite's (R10-25).

It turns out that the battery from my Tecra M4 was definitely one of the batches that have been recalled. So the battery issues I was having with early Vista betas may not have been related to Vista at all... could have been Sony's fault.

But I have to wait 6-8 weeks for my replacement battery. Maybe my new one will get here in time for the consumer launch. ;)
